FISHERIES ISSUES THAT MATTER TO ALL ANGLERS
IT’S great to see the Environment Agency taking the threat of illegal fish on an industrial scale more seriously.
However when we start seeing the likes of fyke traps, crayfish traps and gill nets strewn across our waterways you realise these could have catastrophic effects on fish populations.
This coupled with the impact it will have on other wildlife including birds or heaven help the anglers friend the otter its great for them to make a stand.
To find out more on Project Ghillie pick up a copy of this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine and head to page 4.
BRIAN DOBSONS half-hearted court battle with regards to otters was laughable to say the very least.
His claims were baseless and unproven and I am actually surprised it was even heard in court at all.
Now Mr Dobson has all my sympathies that his life has been ruined by alleged otter predation but he really should have done more homework before taking these actions.
I FEEL for the guys and gals down at pike mecca Chew – I’ve been in a similar situation in my previous job.
Anglers take it upon themselves as being the ‘experts’ as opposed to allowing fishery manager that are normally somewhat more qualified in this field.
Chew is, has been and always will be a phenomenon of a fishery and for people to say it’s on its last legs when it produced 30 lb fish every day for a week is testament to the way in which the venue is managed.
